Pinto worried about 'diving Dutch'


Robben, who admitted after the game that he had dived in the first-half of the Netherlands’ 2-1 win over Mexico, did not get punished by Fifa for this.

Pinto wants Fifa and the match officials to ensure the winger is punished if he does the same thing in today’s quarter-final in Salvador.

“We are really worried about Robben’s diving,” he said.

“He admitted he dived, so I hope that the referee and the assistant referees are very careful today.

“I respect Fifa and the referees very much but I tell them, please watch out,” he added.
